Get up close and personal with some of the most experienced and entertaining adventurers on the planet! The panels for 2017 will focus on “Paddling Expeditions” and film-making. Informal, intimate and informative, just roll up, hang out and ask the experts anything you like…
PADDLING EXPEDITIONS hosted by Tomass Marnics
Ben Sadd – Hot from the screening of his legendary DugOut film this is the guy who has the latest from the jungle paddling scene. Totally tropical and totally topical!
Natalia Cohen – Natalia is our saltwater specialist with a crossing of the pacific under her belt. Her expertise on life incarcerated afloat is second to none. We are lucky to have her aboard!
Chris Scott – A fanatical paddler and pack-rafting zealot. It was Chris’ knowledge of ‘The Yenisey River Expedition’ doc that helped kick-start this festival. Always knowledgeable and funny, any panel that he sits on is worth attending!
THE FILM MAKERS’ PANEL – hosted by festival curator, Austin Vince
Brand new last year this panel was a smash hit. Audience members can literally, ask the experts. No question too silly. Get real-world info from film-makers who have walked the walk. The mixture is leavened and moderated by festival curator Austin Vince. This experts panel is, in it’s way, the essence of the festival. The democratisation of film-making being at the heart of our core values.
